Here at The TateTough Foundation, we are driven by developing awareness and support for the three
TateTough Foundation Pillars:
I. Assist Tate Toward a Full Recovery
II. Create and Fund Scholarships in Tate's Name
III. Develop Awareness and Support for Increasing Safety and Security on College Campuses.
We strive to build awareness and funding that will make a positive impact on all TateTough pursuits.
Making A Difference
TATE'S GOAL TOWARD RECOVERY
The TateTough Foundation's primary pillar is dedicated to assisting Tate in making a full recovery. After Tate was shot in the head, neck and shoulder, his typical regimen of athletics and academics was replaced by doctor visits, physical, occupational and aquatic therapy, counseling and of course legal obligations associated with the case. With bullet fragments still in his neck, 1MM away from his spinal cord, Tate has used that measurement as motivation for the Foundation tagline "1MM = One Man's Mission".
Tate has made tremendous progress and continues to have an "Attack the Day" attitude as he works hard toward recovery. We are always striving to cheer Tate on and invite you to join our team and learn more how to lend your support.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote funding for scholarships at two schools that have been an integral part of and made an impression on Tate: The University of Georgia and Cambridge High School. The Foundation will award a $1000 scholarship to one University of Georgia lacrosse player and one Cambridge High School athlete each year that the Foundation can support the effort. The scholarship will be awarded to a team member that exemplifies toughness both mentally and physically, that embodies the grit to lead by example, and has the spiritual attitude of the ultimate teammate.
SAFETY & SECURITY ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with the challenge of augmenting safety and security on college campuses. The TateTough Foundation has partnered with CampusPost to provide "Future Proof" technology that folds infrastructure and secure peace of mind into college campus ecosystems.
Please visit the "TateTough & Campus Post" buttons below to watch a video with Tate discussing this important initiative and to read more about this this mission.
I can't express how much the TateTough Team appreciates the incredible support of so many that have assisted The Foundation already. Our goal is to have the pillars continue to act as a strong foundation for strength, service and giving on all campuses and communities that the foundation touches. Hopefully through this site and with continued support for our three pillars - we are just getting started.
